And it came to pass on a Christmas evening
When all the doors were shuttered tight
Outside standing, a lonely boy child
Cold and shivering in the night

On the street every window
Save but one was gleaming bright
And to this window walked the boy-child
Peeking in saw candlelight

Through other windows he had looked at turkeys
Ducks, and geese, and cherry pies
But through this window saw a gray-haired lady
Table bare and tears in her eyes

Into his coat reached the boy child
Knowing well there was little there
He took from his pocket his own Christmas dinner
A bit of cheese and some bread to share

His outstretched hands held the food and they trembled
As the door it opened wide
Said he, "Would you share with me Christmas dinner?"
Gently said she, "Come inside"

The gray-haired lady brought forth to the table
Glasses two, last drops of wine
Said she, "Here's a toast to everyone's Christmas
And especially yours and mine"

And it came to pass on that Christmas evening
When all the doors were shuttered tight
That in that town the happiest Christmas
Was shared by candlelight
